I grew up on an eclectic diet of classic literature, horror, thrillers and science fiction. I love the challenge of the sci fantasy genre. Love good food, good company, and good wine, reading, and writing

vino veritas
"The Affluence of Incahol" by djsaxon


Waddya mean I'm a drunk?
I'm as sober as a judge.
Another pint please, I just gave you my keys
I'm a registered, sanctified monk.

Waddya mean I'm aggressive?
I'm a harmless little drudge
But God let me down so I'm out on the town
I'm determined, and somewhat obsessive

Waddya mean I should leave?
Why in God's name should I budge?
Now I'll switch to a gin, 'cause the beer's done me in
I'm committed but still can't believe

Waddya mean there's no God?
Only He can sort the sludge
There's a deadly progression, it's man's indiscretion
We are bound to return to the sod

Waddya mean I'm a sop?
Who are you to push and nudge?

dio benedicta and here's to the victor
Omnipotent Man at the top




Author Notes
OK. Strange construct I know. Strange content. There is a strict discipline in here, I promise. The alternating and erratic meter is intentional. A nod to Tfawcus for the description.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
